Lucky Numbers (A TroubleMaker Novel)
Contemporary Erotic Romance
April 29, 2014
One locked safe, a troublemaking tattoo, and two determined people… add up to unlocked secrets and a love that just won’t stop.
Luke “Lucky” O’Conner is a committed bachelor. His motto…“Nobody’s ever getting this Lucky.” So when Kaley Harlow walks into his tattoo shop and somehow leaves with the only record of the numbers to his new safe tattooed on her sexy little hip, Lucky’s motto is threatened. If he wants to see those numbers again, he has to get close. Closer than he’s ever gotten to any woman. And he has three weeks to do it.
Kaley Harlow, a happily washed-up former child star, is out to ruin her reputation. She’s through with people looking at her like she’s still that innocent little girl in pigtails. Not to mention, her agent has just signed her up for a movie contract. But, really, all Kaley wants is to start a new life and finally go to college.
When Lucky happens into Kaley’s life for the second time, the hot, tattooed badass is exactly what she needs to sabotage her image. But this badass has a secret, one that could ruin more than just Kaley’s reputation.
Kelly resides in a quiet suburb somewhere between Buffalo and Niagara Falls, NY. Her day job? Kelly works in health care representing a group of nursing facilities in the WNY area. She’s been faithfully writing for three years but did write her first book ten years ago. She put it down to raise her son as a single mom and then picked it back up when she and her son finally grew up. That's when she settled into her newly married adult life and started to seriously write again. She's dabbled with Romantic Suspense stories, but recently she's been on a contemporary kick. The recipe for the men in her stories: a dash of bad boy attitude, a cup of strong and confident and, of course, besides being packed with magnificent bodies, and doused with shameless aptitudes, they must have a tender heart you want to rip out of the pages (or your e-Reader) and take to bed with you at night.
Lucky Numbers Adult Excerpt
“Put your hand under your dress,” he said, his thumb still stroking that damn wet beer bottle like it was her clit.
Kaley turned to see if anyone was watching.
“Hey!” Lucky’s stern voice whipped her head back to him. “Look at me. Don’t worry about anyone else. I’ll warn you if someone is coming.” His feet spread her legs farther apart. “Where you’re sitting, I’m the only person who can see you. Now, do as I say, unless you want me to stop.”
His daring eyes held hers, and all discretion slipped out of her grasp. She gave him his answer by dropping her hand beneath the table.
“That’s good,” he rasped, deep and low. “Now place your hand on your thigh and slide up to the top of it. Are you there yet?”
“I want you to grip it hard.”
With her heart racing and wishing his hand was there instead of hers, her fingers dug into her flesh.
His eyes raping her of any reluctance, he bent forward and grunted, “Harder.”
Noting all the hot spots, the tight grip he had on the beer, his biceps and the tattoos bulging from the cut of his sleeves, his mouth that lay slightly open, Kaley squeezed tighter.
“Are you wet?”
“Yes,” she gasped, clinging tighter to her thigh. “I’m so wet.”
His tongue tapped his top lip. “Are you throbbing?”
“God, I’m aching for you,” she said, and she meant it, for she wanted nothing more than his tongue on her.
“Kaley,” he said, swaying closer, tempting her, “tell me, is your pussy mine?”
“Yes,” she breathed out. “It’s all yours.”
“Then touch what is mine.”
This is the first book I've read by this author and it most definitely wont be the last, as I thoroughly enjoyed it!!!!
Lucky Numbers is the 3rd book in the Trouble Maker Series.
Before you get yourself into a panic because you haven't read the first two books to acquaint yourself with the storyline, dont worry its not necessary. This book can be read as a stand alone novel!!!
But once you've finished you'll definitely want to rush out for the first two just to get another fix from this great author!!!!!
Luke aka Lucky is an inked up tattoo palour owner and a confirmed bachelor!! His motto: "Nobody's ever getting this Lucky"
Kayla is a former child star trying to change her image or ruin her "innocent" reputation. All she wants is to start a new life and finally go to college.
That's how she ends up in a chair at Lucky's tattoo palour, with a tattoo on her hip the includes the combination to Lucky's safe.
When Lucky forgets the number he has to find Kaley, to get a look at her ink!!
Lucky is just the person to sabotage Kayley's innocent, clean-cut image, but what Kayley didnt count on is Lucky having a secret that could do more then ruin her reputation!!!
What follows is a hot intense romance and whole lot more then either of them bargained for!!!
The characters are vibrant and interesting and I don't just mean Luke (Lucky) and Kaley. The supporting cast fall into that category to!!!
Lucky and Kaley are made for each other, even though they didnt realise it at the start.
Lucky is charming and sexy as hell, but underneath that all you can see and feel his inner pain, which made me what to wrap my arm around him and take it all away!
Kayla went toe to toe with Lucky and wasnt afraid to do so, not once did she back down. Not once did she come across as bratty or selfish, which could've been the case. I liked her character immensely.
The writing flows evenly and each scene is built up, giving you an insight on the characters, their feelings and emotions, not to mention the tension flowing between the main characters!!!! HOT I tell you, even though there's no actually love scene till about 3/4 through the book!!!
Overall a superb book!!! FIVE STARs!!!
Looking forward to see what Kelly has next to offer
